Open My Heart Lord

Sunday Teaching  

From the heart

Honour

Respect

Esteem

Celebrate

What is

 Waste no time on

What if…

What’s not

The things I’ve lost

Never had or

Not yet learned

If I accord honour

To the honourable

I open my heart to receive

I Hope in God

I Expect in Him

Lord

Acknowledge All I am

Right Now

I honour God

And all He brings to my life

* The Body Shop campaigning against child slavery

* Able bodied help weeding the garden

* Roasted winter roots, colours, flavours, tastes and textures

    Beetroot, Carrots, Parsnips and Onions

* Successful replacement of faulty computer cables

* Wonderful fragrance of curry meeting me in the food hall

* We share a curry that does not disappoint

* I see Roses with new shoots

* I photograph rain drops

* And Find spider shadows

* And a Bird-drop Caterpillar

* I tackle a craft project that fails

* I try again

* And succeed

But

* Sadness dogs me all week

* Brings me to Heart-felt Searching

* And Prayer

* I examine

* I list

* Negatives spring up to blind me

* I find fault

* I cry and plead

* I see Fire and Ice

 * My Powerlessness

* But the Word of God…

* Thaws

* Encourages

* Lifts

Here is something I can do

Find the Worth and…

Honour it

So…

Open my Heart Lord

Open my Heart…
